Things to be thankful for

As we approach the holiday season, I have seen a number of my friends posting things that they are thankful for. As Pres. Thomas S. Monson said, we should have "an attitude of gratitude". I want to say that I have been truly blessed. The list is long, but here are a few of the things for which I am grateful:
  • stalwart parents who loved me and taught me to be a caring person.
  • a devoted husband who is always there for me, and spoils me a lot.
  • wonderful children who have grown into fine adults of which I am so proud.
  • fantastic grandchildren who are too smart and talented and beautiful for words.
  • really awesome brothers who have always loved me and watched over me through the years.
  • living in the USA where we are free to live according to the dictates of our hearts.
  • those men and women who serve us so faithfully.
  • And...most of all for a Saviour who gave all that we might return to our Heavenly Father when our time here is over.
